Gold Camp Road Rock Tunnel

This was a challenge. I loved the scene, but it was challenge to draw the cut rock. As I made this I kept thinking of the strong men who somehow cut out that hole!! Wow.Dedication. Believe it or not, all those lines were a great way to relax - to "unstring the bow".

Two Buddies

We had breakfast at Ivywild in Colorado Springs - at the Old School Bakery. I loved sketching these two buddies have a great breakfast and a nice visit.

Sermon Sketch

It's been a while since I've made a sermon sketch. This morning I approached today's service with intentionality to "see" the message. This is the result of that message by Pastor Glenn Packiam at New Life Downtown.

Sketching Maroon Bells

Naturally, it's hard to capture the beauty of this spot but I made an attempt. They say, this is the most photographed spot in all of Colorado and it's easy to see why. 
Later I added ink to the drawing. Much better I think.

Lisbon Street Band

My favorite part was showing these musicians my sketch. Each one wanted an up-close look. What a blast.

Coffee in Brooklyn, NYC

We enjoyed coffee at Cafe Pedlar on Court Street in Brooklyn. I especially liked the large coffee sign on the back wall.

The Right Hand of King Stephen I

I have to admit it was kinda weird to see King Stephen's right hand in the chapel of this Basilica - but it was still a very nice place to visit. I just had to sit for a while and sketch with my right hand after my walk to the reliquary. 

Stephen on his horse at Fishermen's Bastion

I was quite taken with this statue to King Stephen I of Hungary. This entire location is super to visit.  

A sketch from a recent hike

We hike a lot around the area where we live in Colorado. I never tire of these kinds of rock formations.

Face sketching

Trying an experiment to see if I can draw faces. So far so good. This guy, Robert Falcon Scott was involved in an Antarctic venture. He is mentioned in one of my many books about Earnest Shackleton. 

Sketches from Malta

We spent a week in Malta hosting a conference for Christian school administrators. It was fun to find new things to sketch. 

The Schotanus Guesthouse

This was fun to sketch and to add a bit of watercolor. We had a wonderful holiday here in April 2014.
